Elton says, "It's the last time I will be touring and travelling the world because my priorities have changed in my life." He plans to spend more time with his family and young children after the tour.
While not ruling out writing new music, Elton says his musical career will be put on the back-burner.
He is currently 70 years old and has sold over 300 million records and owns the best-selling single of all-time.
